Coming Up: Hommocks and a Dreamcoat
24 Jan, 2012
By Polly Kreisman
February 2-4, the Hommocks Middle School Players are performing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat this year. here’s what they sent over:
Set in biblical times, this show retells the well-known story of Jacob, his favored son Joseph and the eleven brothers who betrayed him.
It is a story of treachery and hardship, of love and loyalty, and of making your dreams come true.
Joseph is not your average musical. As a rock opera, songs dominate including numerous full ensemble pieces that will make the floor shake.
There is music for all varieties of music lovers as the songs shift from Western square dances to 50’s Rock n’ Roll pieces to Calypso beach strumming. With humor, bright characters and unforgettable music, it’s no wonder that on the thirtieth anniversary of its Broadway debut, Joseph remains a smash hit that charms audiences of all ages.
This year, Producer Dr. Jill Karliner along with Hommocks staff members Tom Jordon, Deanna Chorman and Pedro Johnson lead a cast and crew of over 100 students from the sixth, seventh and eight grades.
